families in Ann Arbor.
This traditional program has
been in operation the last five

Three weeks ago the students
were sent a self-addressed postcard
asking them if they desired to go
to an American home for Thanks-
Those whoreplied in the affir-
mative were situated in different
homes by Mrs. Mead, house di-
rector, who handled the program.
Two days ago Mrs. Mead gave
a sigh of relief as she placed the
last individual on her list in an
Ann Arbor home.
In some instances the families
a directly invited the students if
they are personal friends.
In the past foreign students have
reported pleasant memories of
American family life brought back

will be broken at the annual Wig

p.m. to midnight Saturday, Dec.

The tradition that Smith hopes
will finally be outdone is that prac-

gating and has discovered that the
night of Dec. 13 will be a busy one
for campus events this year, with
parties and pledge formals being

Acting on this information he
secured a list of the happenings
and inserted it in each law stu-
dent's mail box, hoping to further
stimulate them to act in arrang-

Rex Smith's orchestra will play

ing sold for $2.75 before the dance

door. The committee hopes that
this policy will give even added at-
traction to the suggestion to act

any Barrister or at Hutchins Hall,

THE PRESIDENT of the United
States and many other dignitaries
have expressed their appreciation
of the work that these Navy wo-
men have done to help preserve'
In order to preserve the effi-
ciency of the Wave organization, it
is necessary to constantly train in-
telligent young women to be lead-
ers in this group.
Since there is no Naval Acad-
emy for women, the U. S. Navy
selects college graduates from
the many colleges and universi-
ties throughout the country to
fill these vacancies.
The Reserve Officer Candidate
school for women is open to fresh-
men, sophomore and junior women
as well as seniors because the pro-
gram includes two six-week sum-
mer sessions at a Naval Station.

sessions coeds may qualify for a
Reserve commission without inter-
fering with their college work.
Upon receiving a degree and
reaching 21 years of age, coeds
may be commissioned an Ensign
in the Naval Reserve. In case of
a national emergency, these wo-
men officers will be called on to
serve their country.

vided into a basic and an advanced
phase of six weeks each, both of
which are conducted concurrently
during the months of July -and
August at a large naval training

located atnUnited States Naval
Training Center,Great Lakes, Ill.,
and in 1952 at the Naval Training
Center in Bainbridge, Md.
At present, provision is made
for an annual maximum enroll-
meift of 160 in the basic phase.
The staff is composed of quali-
fied Naval Reserve women, of-
ficer and enlisted, who are tem-
porarily recalled from civilian
life for this specific summer
Associating with other college
women, from Maine to California,
the Reserve trainee will live in
Waves barracks and conform to a
6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily schedule.
Courses in leadership, naval his-
tory and law, gunnery and naviga-
tion and communications will give
trainees a listening knowledge of
naval traditions and operations.

dresses, ties, garrison caps, rain-
coats and hoods, shoes and hose,

At any time during the train-
ing program Reserve trainees

Actually the initial planning for
JGP started last May when Miss
Hodges presided over the first cen-

their committee via the postal ser-
vice from her home in Grosse
This fall while the football team
and new classes occupied the at-
tention of most people, Miss
Hodges was working over the JGP
script making last-minute correc-
tions with writer, Jane Thompson;
assistant chairman, Jackie Schiff
